Can anyone tell me the structure of propanal? Thats not the same as propanol right, since propanol has an OH function group?

Thanks

i don't think 2-proponal can exist. proponal is an aldehyde-- a propane group with a carbonyl group and a hydrogen at the end

CH3CH2HC=O C--C--C--H with a double bond O on the C attached to the H....thus, 2-proponal couldn't really exist...it would have to be 2-propanone which is also a given as there are only 3 carbons...

Thanks for helping. I was just a little concerned because I took the 485 and 486 and 2-propanal showed up a couple times in the questions in the O-Chem section and I wasn't quite sure what that structure looked like.
